Never rain in race?
This first series of 4 short 45 min races will have no rain (2 events left) Brands & Spa , These are designed to get us all up to speed with the way ACC works.
As the series moves on to the next levels we add weather & rain ..
That's said the Spa race will be a day/night transition ..
I have updated the info post with dates & times for the remaining series !
I couldn't really get up to speed in quali and also the start was really mediocre. Starting up front is so much easier
But that was impossible with the pace Sovolainen had anyway. Man you are alienfast!
After the start I heared my teammate Simon wasn't able to start and had to rejoin. Hopefully this isn't something common.
I was following Pablo and Alex and managed to sneak by him when he went slightly offtrack.
After that I got closer and closer to Pablo and felt I had a better pace.
I had a good run out of turn 1 and should have just followed him as there was no room whatsoever
but heyho -Brainfart- ,again I spun him around.
Again my apologies Pablo for going Vettelstyle on you for the second time in a row.
We had another good battle and I messed it up. After that my tires overheated and I crashed twice so a pitstop was the best thing to do.
I came out behind Pablo a lap down so I had to wait for all the others in front entering the pits.
After that I went off twice and that was the end of a sloppy race.
I like ACC more than AC but it's a harsh learning school.
Congrats to Sovolainen, Alex and Pablo.
See you at Spa.
Results have been posted !
Great race guys & nice sportsmanship !
Cant wait for Spa !
Like Tim I struggled to find the pace I had during the week practice mid to low 25's mid 26 in qual was best I could do
all for nothing sat on the grid wondering why we were not moving then when Tim did answer me found that the start had already gone but I was still on the grid waiting for the pack to drive off .
Was a shame was looking forwards to having a more stable race then last one .
Well done podium thanks Rob
see you all at Spa
I wondered what happened to you Simon your Q was good but then no results ..
I hope you can sort the connection issue
Replay available on the result page !
It was so tight race with tight track. I put the good pace after start but shamely someone was spinning at the turn after back straight in last 5 minute and I could not escape off, so bum! I am not sure he was blue flagged but ıt was really unlucky moment for me with great race.
Congratulations to the podium. See ya next.
Sorry to hear Taner .. way to take it on the chin
These things happen and how we deal with them defines us ..
